A Blackadder Homage in Song

Blackadder meets Shakespeare – NOT Blackadder

Hot news just in. I emailed writer Richard Curtis regarding the charity sketch that has for a long time been considered a ‘Blackadder’ special.

Blackadder Rides Again for Christmas

As mentioned by me some time ago, Blackadder will be making a return to BBC1 this Christmas, albeit in a documentary celebrating 25 years. The programme will be called “Blackadder Rides Again” – a title which will no doubt confuse viewers; leading them to think that its an actual one-off sitcom special and not a […]
